It’s the last official weekend of Summer and I’m hardcore celebrating. And by hardcore celebrating, I mean lighting my @raedunn fall scented candles, binge watching Netflix and going to bed before 10pm. 🙌🏻 Remember when our nights didn’t even start until 10pm? I would dance all night, get back home with just enough time to shower and change before heading out to work. AND I could work a full 8 hours without ever feeling the fact that I hadn’t slept in more than 24 hours... Now I’m unable to function if someone wakes me up 15 minutes early. Getting old is awesome. .

It’s the last official weekend...

I read something the other day on Facebook that said that the song that was number 1 on your 14th birthday, defines your life. I googled it, excited to find a message, a sign (I’m a sucker for that sort of thing). Instead, I found it was “Cream” by Prince. 😐 Cream? What does that mean? Ice cream? Coffee creamer? 
So I looked it up... and read the lyrics. "Cream" was meant to mean “cream of the crop”. There are lyrics like “everything you do is success” and my favorite part... “Do your dance
Why should you wait any longer?
Take a chance
It could only make you stronger”  Message received, Prince. Message received. 
What song was number one on your 14th birthday?

This girl lost another tooth last week. I’ve been waiting for this toothless smile since she knocked her other one out last year. Unfortunately, it’s not going to last long because her adult tooth is already growing in 😭. (Zoom in to see) Yesterday I noticed both of her front-bottom teeth are peeking out behind her baby teeth too. Does anyone know how to slow down time. A button? A phone call? Maybe a time machine? My baby isn’t a baby anymore. Cue the tears. Have you celebrated any milestones with your kids recently?

I don’t get bouquets of flowers for no reason…. But I do appreciate the flowers that grow by our mailbox, like this one. And it made me realize something this morning.  I’m over it. 
I’m over comparing my life to other people’s lives on social media.
My house might not be as fancy. 
My wardrobe is not as expensive. 
I don't apply makeup as well or even at all most days.
I don’t have beautiful, long flowing hair.
I don’t drive a car that’s worth bragging about. 
We don’t go on lavish trips around the world. 
I don’t carry loads of money in designer handbags. 
Does that make me less of a person? 
Does that make me less of an influencer? 
No. It makes me a regular 40-something Mom who has chosen to open up and share our lives on social media.  It makes me someone who has built this hobby of photography and writing into a business that has solely supported my family for a year and a half. 
I’m proud of that. 
I’m proud that I’m not a follower.
I’m proud that I have worked hard for what I’ve achieved.
I’m proud of influencers like me who are unapologetically themselves.  What are you proud of? .

It was just after Iyla's third birthday. She seemed to be on track, at least according to the pediatrician's checklist. She could follow instructions, name most familiar things, knew her first name, spoke in sentences and could carry a conversation, though she was hard to understand most of the time. We enrolled her in preschool that year and she was a little social butterfly. But as that school year went on, her teachers started to notice that she was struggling to get her words out. Most people that know Iyla today, have no idea that she was in speech therapy classes for two years. They have no idea that I fought it for almost 6 months and that I felt a tremendous guilt about it, because I thought it was my fault that she was stuttering as badly as she was. Today on the blog, I’m sharing the mistakes I made, in hopes that if you are ever in this situation, you take advantage of early intervention. .

We always pack the essentials when we're heading out in this Florida heat, including snacks, sunblock and @smartwater, because we know how important it is to stay hydrated. We love smartwater® because it's purified water made using vapor distillation, similar to the way water is purified in nature. It's available in 700mL and 1L bottles. Now through 9/15, you can save $2.75 off at Sam's Club, so stock up!

Why We’re Dumping Wet Wipes

If You Love It, Share It!

Ever since we had kids, we’ve had some form of wet wipes in our home.   What works for our babies will work for us too, right?! At least that’s what we thought.  As of today, we are dumping wet wipes for good. And you should too! Here’s why…

See… while wet wipes are great and leave you feeling fresh and clean, they aren’t meant to be flushed. Yet so many of us do it on a regular basis.  What I didn’t realize was that we are actually clogging up our pipes and even though some packages claim that their wipes are flushable, they aren’t!  They don’t break down like toilet paper does because they are meant to be wet.   They clog up the sewers and cause sewage flooding. Yuck!  We need to stop the madness!

Butt wait!

How do we keep our bum’s fresh and clean without our beloved wipes?  Well, our friends at Squatty Potty (creators of the Squatty Potty and SquattyPottymus) have created the magic remedy.  Meet Toilet Paper Foam, the safer wet wipe alternative!

Apply foam to toilet paper, wipe, flush and feel refreshed! Made with soothing aloe and witch-hazel, this toilet paper foam softens skin and reduces discomfort. It’s a great alternative to wet wipes! Now’s your chance to be more hygienic AND eco-friendly. Doing the right thing just feels good. Like, it literally feels good on your bum.

We Wouldn’t Give You a Bum Steer

After just one use, we were hooked.  Toilet Paper Foam leaves you feeling clean. It has a fresh scent and is the perfect size to carry around in your purse (we want to feel fresh on the go too).   It’s sewer and septic safe and best of all, environmentally friendly!

It’s especially great when you have kids.  It makes cleaning themselves easier and they aren’t clogging the toilet with 20 wet wipes (we’ve all experienced that, haven’t we?). Plus, it makes laundry day that much easier on our eyes and noses.  You get what I’m saying?

Toilet Paper Foam is #1 when it comes to #2!

    This sounds like a wonderful product, very innovative and good for the environment. It is a great substitute for people using wet wipes.

  • Tiffany Haywood
    July 1, 2018

    I love this! Wipes can be iffy when it comes to flushing without issues. This is the perfect way to get the cleanliness you want without any of the trouble wipes can bring.

  • Calleigh Keibler
    June 30, 2018

    This is actually interesting though I don’t normally use wet wipes because I’m afraid it would clog the toilet bowl.

    I had no idea that this was an actual thing! I think I could make the transition. Have you tried this on a baby’s bottom?

  • Becca Talbot
    June 29, 2018

    So glad to read you’re removing wet wipes from your lives. I know firsthand that the transition is not easy, but if you’re determined (and have an alternative, which you do), then it will be easier. And better on the environment 😉 x

  • Namrata Sinha
    June 29, 2018

    One of the best innovation I’ve come across to. A great product to think of when I’ll have a baby.

  • Ginger Sorensen
    June 29, 2018

    We live in an RV and had NO IDEA squatty potty made something like this. It would be perfect. We actually already have the squatty potty and love it. This will be a great addition to our bathroom needs. LOL

  • Wander With Ola
    June 29, 2018

    Wow, I have never heard about such thing. This Toilet Paper Foam would be very handy. What a great alternative to wet wipes (which, like you said, can clog up the sewers and cause sewage flooding, ew!)!

  • WhatLauraLoves

    Ooh what an innovative product! I definitely think this would be useful in our household! xxx

  • Becca Wilson
    June 28, 2018

    I have never heard of this before but it looks like something we could use. We definitely go through a lot of wipes here.

    June 28, 2018

    OMG that poop button is something else! Too cute.

  • Heather
    June 28, 2018

    That I pooped today button is killing me. I hadn’t heard that the Squatty Potty line had expanded, but this sounds like an awesome idea. In our vintage home, we have to protect our pipes at all costs!

  • Bianca Dottin
    June 28, 2018

    This looks like an interesting product. I never knew people flushed Wet Wipes.

  • Adaezeboltbethel

    This is something to keep in your purse as you pursue your daily activities. I can’t wait to try it, i’m hoping it does as it claims.

  • Stephanie Parrell
    June 28, 2018

    I gave them up for the same reasons! It really is not a need in life and you can live without them. It is a great way to help the environment!

  • Grace
    June 28, 2018

    This is such an interesting product. I don’t usuallly use wet wipes in the washroom but if I ever did need to, this product is a great substitute!

  • Louisa
    June 28, 2018

    Never knew that people flushed wet wipes. That’s not something I use but the Squatty Potty looks like a fun product to try.

  • Momina Arif

    Such a great alternative. I’m sure lots of people will be discarding the wipes now that they have another option

  • Mag

    Very ingenious, environmentally friendly product! It sure would be a radical change to use this product instead of paper or wipes, but who knows!

  • LavandaMichelle

    What a great alternative. I’ve never heard of this product, but I’m always down to try something better for the environment. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    This is so funny yet awesome! Honestly you could probably promote this to mommas who just gave birth too! I know after I gave birth, this stuff would have done wonders for my bottom!

  • Kate Andrews

    Clever idea! I haven’t used wipes but this would be something to keep in mind.

    I love how more and more companies are coming up with a solution to lessen waste. I think this is pretty awesome and it does the job well!

  • Reesa Lewandowski
    June 27, 2018

    Interesting concept! I have heard even flushable wipes aren’t that great either. And what a great way to avoid waste!

  • Kristi Ann
    June 27, 2018

    This is a seriously great invention!! Then you can choose whether you need the extra wetness or not. I know this will save my daughter from using so much toilet paper at a time sometimes!

  • Marcie
    June 27, 2018

    I didn’t realize people try to flush wet wipes?!? They are probably the same ones who flush tampons and clog up public restrooms. My husband would love this product!

  • Jenn

    What a brilliant line extension for SP! We’ll need to check this out, love it!

  • Karen Morse
    June 27, 2018

    I am all about reducing waste and it’s something that I also urge family to do. I think this is awesome! I love that you’re sharing this, it’s a nice alternative to wet wipes.

  • Chubskulit Rose

    We don’t use wet wipes in the bathroom. I think the product you featured is a lot environmental friendly than wert wipes.

  • Kiwi
    June 27, 2018

    I love the branding of squatty potty so cute! I didnt know even the flushable wipes were not good and still clogs the toliet I also think people need to stop using them because of the toxic chemicals on the wipes and many are not organic or made with natural ingredients.

  • Angela Ricardo Bethea
    June 27, 2018

    Though I’ve never heard of this before that’s quite an interesting product. Never knew that wt wipes were that harmful to our environment.

  • Cris
    June 27, 2018

    I had no idea that we can find this product. I would definitely give it a try!

  • Ricci
    June 27, 2018

    This is an interesting concept! I use wet wipes in my home and never thought about how bad they are, I may need to look into the bathroom foam!

  • Rachel
    June 27, 2018

    I had no idea they made this stuff! We’ve been using a squatty potty for YEARS!

  • Mary
    June 26, 2018

    A great alternative to the so called flushable wipes. I will look into switching over.

  • Marysa
    June 26, 2018

    This seems like a great concept. I’ve heard for years that wet wipes aren’t good for plumbing. Funny, I saw an “I Pooped Today” sticker on someone’s car the other day. The kids thought it was the funniest thing, and I’m glad I saw your post!

  • Tara
    June 26, 2018

    “Butt Wait” hahahaha. I love your humour in this topic. I will definitely have to see if we have that product available here in Canada.

  • Sue Reddel
    June 26, 2018

    Well, this is a new product I’ve never heard of before. I’m all for a greener solution and this sounds like a good one.

  • Yaswanth Jayakumar
    June 26, 2018

    Have always been skeptical about the environmental impact of wet wipes. This new product though seems more environment-friendly than wet wipes, although if you think about it, this water ends up in somewhere or the other polluting some land or water body.

    • Heather Castillo
      June 26, 2018

      This is made of natural ingredients – it’s safe so no, it’s not polluting anything.

  • Stephanie Jeannot
    June 26, 2018

    Wow! And to think that the packages do say do not flush and then we do it anyway. Something to consider if they truly do clog pipes. That’s not good.

  • Terri Steffes
    June 26, 2018

    I am intrigued. I like that it takes up less room and is probably lighter than wipes. I’d try it.

  • Roch
    June 26, 2018

    I’m not a fan of wet wipes because I prefer using clothes or tissue paper instead. The toilet paper foam sounds good and worth a try.

  • Erin Sluka
    June 26, 2018

    Now this is actually a great product. Our youngest is 10 so we don’t typically need wet wipes. I love this

    • Heather Castillo
      June 26, 2018

      We’ve been using the adult wipes for years. Not anymore!

  • Vaishali
    June 26, 2018

    Sounds like a good product. I have my doubts though..ha ha

  • Pam
    June 26, 2018

    This is such a great idea for a product. Wipes just create so much waste and I hate that you can’t flush them.

  • Kim
    June 26, 2018

    This product seems like a great buy! I had never heard of it! Thanks for sharing

  • Marcel Joshua kannampuzha
    June 26, 2018

    i have never heard of wipe towels and this is so cool. why is this not in my life i wonder. thank you for the insight and i will be looking forward to buy your product and feel like a prince.

  • Rachel
    June 26, 2018

    Never seen or heard of this alternative before but seems like a good idea to me!

  • Chelsea
    June 26, 2018

    This is actually such a good idea! I don’t use wet wipes because they are so awful for the environment as well as obviously a danger to clogging pipes in your home, so I’d definitely check this stuff out as an alternative!

  • Jenn @ EngineerMommy
    June 26, 2018

    This sounds like a cool product. I never heard of it but it makes a lot of sense. I will look into getting some for our household.

  • Backpacking Series
    June 26, 2018

    That’s a great alternatives to wet wipe. Easy, quick, eco friendly and looks refreshing too! Thanks for introducing this fantastic product.

  • Cassie

    These sound amazing and definitely easier to use. I like this alternative

  • Tasheena

    This product is really innovative and sounds like a wonderful product. I would love to purchase some for my family.

  • Melissa Chapman
    June 26, 2018

    I am a wet wipe addict and use them for everything including when I am in the bathroom. I never flush them so now with this foam it would be a great way to get the best of both worlds.

  • Luna S
    June 26, 2018

    This sounds like a helpful product. Working in healthcare I know there is no brand of wipes that breakdown, we still have to use them in the retirement home so they just get thrown out instead of flushes.

  • Shanab
    June 26, 2018

    Thanks for the insights and fresh perspective – no pun intended. I never consider how harmful wet wipes could actually be for the environment. The foam sounds like a smart alternative.

  • Neil Alvin Nicerio
    June 26, 2018

    I don’t know about you people but we seldom use wet wipes here in the Philippines. A tabo or water dipper is common in the province. A biddet is common in the city.
    Wet wipes is just an additional waste and is equivalent to another tree cut down.
    Now regarding your product it is something that we haven’t seen in the market. Would love to try it out…
